Sand Hollow just might answer the question of whether Utah would be better off managing public lands instead of the federal government. It is rumored that Washington County supervisors are negotiating a 1,300 acre land swap in the Sand Hollow area with the Bureau of Land Management behind closed doors with little or no public input. This stinks of the deal made over the Red Rock legislation that closed many off-road trails.
It will be interesting to see what public input is allowed. The problem as I see it is Washington County, not the state or federal government, because they are the ones rumored to be pushing the deal.
